For hundreds of thousands of years, non secular principles have formed the techniques and deeds of humans, and consequently many early geological options have been firstly built during this context. The ebook discusses this long-standing courting from a old perspective, which long ago has been occasionally detached, occasionally fruitful and occasionally packed with clash. the connection keeps good into the current. whereas Christian fundamentalists assault evolution and comparable palaeontological findings in addition to the geological proof of the age of the Earth, mainstream theologians attempt for a fruitful discussion among technology and faith. a lot of what's written and mentioned this present day can merely be understood, whilst the ancient standpoint is extra.
This e-book considers the next issues: the improvement of geology from mythological techniques in the direction of the ecu Enlightenment, Biblical or Geological Flood and the age of the Earth, geology inside non secular companies, biographical case experiences of geological clerics and spiritual geologists, faith and evolution, old points of creationism and its explanations.
